omg i answered it myself
all you have to do is once you have your text tool working
double click any glyph in your glyph browser to apply it to your text 

AWESOME ... easy when you know how   :lol05: :laugh2: :elmo:

Yep...you got it.  Happy you found it.....be prepared to do absolutely nothing else  when you start playing with applying them.  I have wasted a couple of days just fooling around with it.  Fascinating to say the least.   :thumb3:

Well, now I have to go play with this!!  Spent yesterday playing with typography and ended up creating PDF's of all my fonts to see if I can manage them better.  Fonts are so fun!
